Realms of Earth and Sky app (iPhone or iPad iOS7)
The Fralin is pleased to present an app enhancing Realms of Earth and Sky exhibition and catalogue. The app documents much of The Fralin's Indian painting collection and features catalogue entries by curators Daniel Ehnbom and Krista Gulbransen. As many of the exceptional works in The Fralin's collection remain unpublished, the app represents an important contribution to current study of Indian painting.
The Fralin Museum of Art at the University of Virginia is pleased to present interactive 3-D visualizations of ceramics and sculpture collection highlights from the Ancient Mediterranean, South Asia, Africa, and Ancient Americas. Each object in this catalogue can be rotated and enlarged using simple touch gestures. A detailed description written by Musuem curators accompanies each piece and chronicles its history and cultural context.
The Museum publishes catalogues in conjunction with many of its special exhibitions. In addition to current catalogues available from the Museum store, The Fralin Museum of Art offers a number of out-of-print ones as as PDFs for download.
The Museum's past four annual reports are available for review through downloadable PDFs.
Writer's Eye Anthology
Each year, the anthology recognizes the winners of the annual Writer's Eye competition. Their poetry and prose appears alongside color reproductions of the artwork that inspired them. This annual literary competition invites contestants from third graders to university students and beyond to create original works of poetry and prose inspired by art in the Museum's collection and in its special exhibitions.
